Preview: Flash, Shazam, Teen Titans Crossover For DC 5G Future State

DC Group Editor Alex Carr talked to Den of Geek about the new Teen Titans, Flash and Shazam Future State mini-series in DC's January 2021 solicitations. And shared some artwork in the process – and that these three books will tie in., He states "Something that I really credit senior editor, Mike Cotton, with doing here, and his creative teams, was there is a direct story thread that ties through Future State Flash, Future State Teen Titans, and then Future State Shazam. You do get a continuing story there. It doesn't mean that you have to read one to read the other, but if you do read all three, you see some really interesting pieces come together that involve Barry, when he and other speedsters are tied off from the Speed Force, you get Wally, then you have Teen Titans. You also have an interesting plot that flows, particularly from Teen Titans into Shazam, involving the Rock of Eternity and the split of Shazam and Billy, which is a really fun idea that writer, Tim Sheridan, takes to a dark place. It's illustrated by Eduardo Pansica in an amazing way."

So we have a look at Flash and Shazam interior artwork (and full solicitations) below:
